Featured Roller Warrior – March 2013

Our featured Roller Warrior for the month of March is Auttoman Empire!

Name: Auttoman Empire
Team: The Dreadnought Dorothys
Number: 915
Position(s): Blocker
Season with KCRW: Rookie

How she discovered KCRW:
“I watched derby on Metro Sports and was more than a little intrigued. The very next day I met Jade Lightning. Serendipity.”

Origin of her derby name:
“Besides my mom calling me Sunshine, my nickname has been Auto for as long as I can remember. Incorporating it was harder than I thought with names like Autumn Bomb, Autobon, and Automaton just not fitting me. [Auttoman] Empire feels right.”

Past injuries:
“I’ve been hurt (a sprained ankle during the draft), but not injured.”

Proudest derby moment:
“My proudest derby moment so far has to be during a practice with The Cowtown Butchers at River Roll Skate Center. Polish Hitman told me I’m the next ‘so-and-so’ and Crimson Cobra said I hit like ‘what’s her name.’ To be spoken of by skaters of their incredible skill level in the same breath as skaters that I admire was the best feeling ever!”

What sets her apart in KCRW:
“I wouldn’t say there is any one thing that sets me apart in KCRW. We are women, we are powerful, and we are awesome in our own individual ways. When I get together on the track as a team with my teammates is when I feel truly amazing!”
